Growing Emphasis on food security drives the market
Global population is increasing exponentially, and every day nearly 200,000 people are adding up to the world food demand. . Farmland per capita in 2030 will decrease to 1800m², from the 2,200m² in 2005. Adding to this, crop pests are causing 10-16% of global crop losses annually, making the situation worse. To attain self-sufficiency in food, hydroponics provide an effective solution as the technology uses the space efficiently.
Hydroponic industry is the documented higher yield in comparison to traditional agricultural techniques. Along with profit farming, growing consumption of exotic, salad crops and increasing need for global food security will drive the market upwards.
